STATEMENT

The universe we know is made up of collectivities. It is the concept of human beings that distinguishes it. The Collectivity changes shape and impression, it seems to be a thing including diversity.

For example,


Cell → person → society → country → star → galaxy → universe


This boundary originally seamless was prescrived by a person exactly. In other words, human beings are recognized by act of drawing lines by a person. I think it is a part of human nature.


The line I focus on is the “Border line” of the main visual art series Collectivity. The Cluster of Lines “time line” Although the meaning differs from series to series, it is an examination and visualization of the many-faceted nature of the act of drawing human lines.


Collectivity series:

 

In the Collectivity series, the organic lines formed by the gaps between pieces acknowledges the existence of invisible boundaries. The artworks look like drawings even though there are no drawn lines; the resin valley emphasizes the fact that boundaries exist without them. It is the invisible lines that give the boundaries equal recognition as depth, space, and matter all come to equal focus. These lines, which can be specifically observed in Asian Art, is visualized. They are seen as gaps between space and matter here; each part reminding us of the complexity and miscibility of various things. Moreover, the material, color gradation, and texture expand differently in the artwork to emphasize the lines and diverse composition.


The Cluster of Lines series:

 

The cluster of lines series aims to acknowledge the existence of lines present in the gaps of sequential animation drawings. Focal points change based on how the lines depict speed. This is an experiment to sense the time gap by occasionally giving the lines equal focus.
